to marcus garvey and martin luther king, those are families that own and will always be there forever and ever. you tell those folks, hey, we're going to make sure the commercial people, not the vbd, not the merchants, we're going to make sure they live up to their responsibility. they are supposed to make sure the doors are open for people to come in and do a lot of events and things. picture this if you would, instead of busses coming in at 5:00, what if you create the traffic there. they are right now in a serious crisis but it's just a block away. everybody is looking for foot traffic. everybody is looking for an opportunity to do things, bring people from somewhere, all you have to do is walk up the street and say for the next 30 days we're going to make sure there's a terrible outrageous discount so you folks can participate because they don't participate. the foot traffic is right there so you change the name, that's like going to fillmore and golden gate street and telling everybody on that block, we're going to name this happy corner. it don't make sense to change names. what

hero of mine. much more so than martin luther king, because i was quite of a radical as a young person, and i was the one that thought we should shall overcome is not a effective way of gaining civil rights. i think i i thought that more confrontation was needed. >> host: what made you a radical? what does it mean? >> guest: i think a radical, -- i'm still a radical today. that is i believe that a radical is any person who believes in the official liberty and individual freedom and limited government. that makes you a radical. and i have always been a -- person who believe that people should not we are interfere with me. i should be able to do my own thing as long as i don't violate the rights other people. >> host: who is the difference of following malcom x. omar tin luther king? >> host: well, at that time i thought martin luther king was too much a compriseer. i was willing to demand people in my career in the army was a part of that vision of confronting racial discrimination. >> host: how tall are you? >> guest: six foot fight. >> host: were you that height in the army? >> guest:

thing i've noticed about the kennedys and martin luther king is that they had a word that -- to me, as a progressive democrat is empathy. and i find that -- i think that republicans understood that word empathy at one point in time but i think after reagan came in, they learned to forget what empathy means. >> stephanie: howard, somebody said it best who called during the campaign. they said everyone said everybody doesn't like mitt romney because he's rich. they were saying no. everybody knew the kennedys were rich. you had a feeling they cared about people that weren't. obviously people didn't have that feeling with romney. >> george romney. >> stephanie: right. >> speaking of kennedys, we have a couple of them on tomorrow's show. christopher kennedy lawford and patrick kennedy calling in. >> stephanie: we're all kennedyed up tomorrow. how weird. tomorrow just like magic -- [ ♪ magic wand ♪ ] >> i know how to tease!
